J: The vision of beauty is just a versatile as a Mirage; an existence which can only be seen but not touched. The Globe represents a world referring to the Internet that is part of our life.
J: For things I do, I aim to break it down to its simpliest form. Stick to a basic design foundation: “Keep it crystal clear, simple and it all becomes self explanatory".
J: My software development hobby started in 2001. It was started off as a personal a portfolio showcase, and then it went on to hosting for a handful of websites and applications. In late 2005, I started to work on hardware and research on various IT web technologies. This led me to currently orchestrating a cloud server at Amazon as a strange hobby of mine. This all happened along side my day job as a developer. I can say its my passion.
J: I thrive working in and being a mentor for small development teams (have had quite some experience) in startup environment. Building rapport with clients and using rapid minimal viable development styles as our mantra; build it quick, break it and make it better. I have picked up development techniques as needed in projects, learning as I go.
J: I think I better go in points...
J: Life is like driving down a one way highway, make stop, enjoy and move on. Live life. Try things, do things and make the most positive of everything.
